Women in the tech industry: Stashaway’s Nandini Joshi

2021 was two half years. People accepted or rejected the changes Covid-19 imposed on them last year. Still, it’s been a year of major changes in the fintech industry, and the rise of female leaders continues.

Overall, more people are joining the investment industry in the digital wealth management industry. This is great. Interestingly, there was an increase in financial literacy and investment literacy. I was particularly excited to see more female customers. This year, 50% of our new clients were female, and I predict this number will continue to grow until 2022.

As a company, we have grown significantly over the past year. There was a growing demand for robo-advisors in many markets. StashAway has started operations in 2 to 5 countries and welcomed over 60 new team members. Currently, the world’s total workforce is made up of 42% females and 58% males. Personally, it’s really rewarding to see our products and teams succeed and thrive through a lot of hard work. We look forward to the New Year and promise to reach out to more people and empower their life goals through investment.

With the growth of FinTech, the number of female seats in the boardroom and higher leadership positions is increasing rapidly. Having a female leader is essential for any industry today, especially in the field of technology, and women need to sit at the table, play these roles and show their excellence from above. Every woman wants to know that she belongs to a company or industry. If the C Suite is male only, it does not show young females the path to success. Why do aspiring women want to waste their talents and years when they don’t have a climbing ladder?

Leadership women can face many challenges, especially when they are at the top, but there are several ways to overcome them. For starters, male personality traits that are considered positive can sometimes work against us.

In my early career, it was hard to get the opportunity to be trusted in new challenges. However, I have continuously benefited from working on my “emotional intelligence” (EQ) abilities with the help of others around me, including women and men. This helps me assess situations, people, emotions, and (every time) has a strategy to overcome them through keen communication and ideas. For example, instead of looking for a path to success by imitating the behavior of successful men around, I learned to stay true to my style while listening, analyzing, and empathizing carefully. ..

We advise women who want to be leaders and entrepreneurs to lead in EQ and prioritize as much as IQ. This will help you stay true to your personality and bring out your most unique self. Then pay it in advance, the road is long and you never know what road you might meet.
